This is the original James Bond car. In Ian Fleming's novels Casino Royale, and Moonraker James Bond drives his 1930 supercharged 4.5 Bentley. Definitely a manly car. I seem to remember him chasing a more modern car that was running away on the corners, but on the straights he could gain ground by over revving and reaching 125 mph while holding his breath that the engine would hold up.

Yes, old Bentleys were always much cooler than today's. And these really were SuperSport back then.

But why is it listed here that this Bentley Blower reaches only 166 kph? I've heard these cars competing in LeMans were going above 200 kph, and to be more exact - the fastest recorded was 209 kph.
